Why do Polytanks Leak?

The true cost of a leaking Polytank sometimes go beyond just repairing the leak

Damage to the roof or platform where the leaking tank is situated, or the water wasted especially if you buy water

Here are the top 10 reasons why Polytank leak

  1. Transporting the tank from the manufacturer to the retailer or to the end user

The careless lifting of tanks by workmen during delivery can cause a Polytank to crack.

  1. Expansion and contraction of a Polytank due to constant overfilling

Consistently overfilling a Polytank makes the material prone to stretch cracks

  1. Using unqualified personnel

There is high likelihood that a Polytank is cracked when mounted unprofessionally.  Where possible the right equipment should be especially for elevated tanks

  1. The Sun

Direct exposure to the sun can play an unintended negative impact on the Polytank

  1. Pierced by a sharp object

Polytanks can be torn by a crane whilst lifting, a nail or any other sharp object accidentally

  1. Poorly placed Polytanks

A lot of Polytanks are placed directly on iron bars or on planks that get wet and break.  In all cases Polytanks must be placed on a flat surface

  1. Loose connectors

A lot of Polytank leaks are caused by loose or broken connectors and faulty ball valves

  1. Plumbers and Water Tank Suppliers

These technicians sometimes cause havoc by accidentally piercing the Polytank whilst trying to work on connectors or climb recklessly on the tank when refilling with water.

  1. Polytank Lids

If a Polytank has a missing lid means the elements will reshape the tank and it increases the chances of it cracking.  Also, in some cases heavy stones and other objects are placed on the tank

  1. Unskilled Tank Repairers

We should be careful who we entrust to repair our tank.  Most extended tank leaks are caused by rogue repairers who use excessive heat or chemicals to attempt to fix a leak

With FF Cleaning Services you are assured your repair will be done professionally.
